I learned how to prevent clients from getting orange and give them an even tan. I was also trained on the types of solution and machine that is good for you. I would never have known this if it wasn't for this course

Tanya Merentis is now ready to embark on a new career path after serving the NYC Police Department as a Detective for twenty-two long years. After retiring from her job, Tanya has always wanted to be in the beauty industry. Prior to the launch of her spray tanning business, Tanya has completed her hands-on airbrush tanning certification program at the Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy in their Connecticut location. This Southern-California based training school is known to offer an entrepreneurial airbrush tanning training program which includes online training combined with hands-on spray tanning training, so students can learn how to use an HVLP spray gun. Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy is owned and managed by distinguished spray tanning expert Simone Emmons. Simone owns her own airbrush tanning business in Los Angeles, California and students are invited to visit and learn from her own airbrush tanning business.

When asked about the reason behind opting for airbrush tanning as her new career path, Tanya said, “I want a different career path. Something I enjoy and love doing and in the beauty industry. I wanted to do this many years ago, but was unable to pursue due to such a time consuming career and motherhood. I tried before. Hopefully, I can succeed this time.”

Tanya’s present business goal is to follow her dreams and make people happy. At present, her business BlissfulBeauTee is serving clients in Upper Westchester (NY), Putnam County (NY), Lower Dutchess County (NY), and Danbury (CT). She can be reached for spray tanning service inquiries at 1-347-231-4783 or at

Tanya Merentis strongly feels that the training received at the Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy will help immensely in her new career. Highlighting the most important benefits of this training session, she says, “I learned how to prevent clients from getting orange and give them an even tan. I was also trained on the types of solution and machine that is good for you. I would never have known this if it wasn't for this course.”

The harmful health impacts of traditional tanning are now known to all. As a result, the popularity of airbrush tanning is rising steadily all over the world. This tanning technique is completely sunless, and therefore, doesn’t expose the skin to the sun’s UV radiation. Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy has been one of the pioneers in the country in this emerging field. Most of their students have now built a steady career as an independent airbrush tanning specialist. The academy has opened their new branch in Connecticut to be able to accept new students from the East Coast and other nearby states. Weekly airbrush tanning classes are provided by their trainer Tammy in Branford, Connecticut. Students are invited to train at Tammy's own airbrush tanning business.
